On our morning in Melbourne, gladly awake at a civilised hour (begone jetlag!), we had eggs Benedict on our minds and headed out to find a local cafe for breakfast…
On Chapel Street (Prahran’s main shopping street) we stopped in the first café we saw, Speakeasy – turns out there are an insane amount of gorgeous light-flooded cafés on Chapel Street, this just happened to be the first we found! A small shopfront led in to a big open space and outdoor space at the back. We sat inside, soaked up the bright soul-nourishing light and tucked into the aforementioned eggs Benedict, mine with smoked salmon, his with bacon, while the little one snoozed. Absolute bliss!
The whistlestop tour of the first part of our trip is now at an end and we have arrived in (ta-dahh!) Tasmania, a first for me. We’re here for MONA FOMA – the Museum of Old and New Art’s Festival of Music & Art (or MOFO as they’re calling it!) and have a few days to enjoy and explore. Husband has got rehearsals and shows (he’s taking part in The Ada Project) but we’ll have more than enough time to get around. First stop, MONA itself, which is meant to be incredible, hopefully this afternoon!
I hope you enjoy the photos, I’m really starting to get the hang of the Olympus Stylus 1 now after some really helpful tips from a Twitter photography pal, Edward Moore who takes incredible photos. Would you have guessed these café shots were taken with a compact, not a DSLR? And the ones featuring me, I took using my phone as a remote – words can’t describe what a revelation this is; so much more scope for blog photos, I’m in heaven!
Ps. It’s the last day of my giveway with Miss Crofton if you haven’t already entered – gorgeous handmade undies!
